Description: Avon High School, Avon, Indiana
Client: Avon Community School Corporation/Fanning-Howie Architects
The proposed site of the new Avon High School was approximately 105 acres of farm land with the Mercer Legal Drain bisecting the property and the West Fork of Clark’s Creek flowing through the eastern-most part of the property. The project was roughly located just southwest of the intersection of CR150S and CR800E in Washington Township. Before the property could be developed the Mercer Drain required relocation and approval from the Hendricks County Drainage Board. Also wetlands along the West fork of Clark’s Creek required mitigation with IDEM. Prior to design, PCS prepared a utility study for the School Corporation to determine the most economical method/company to serve the site for water, sanitary and electrical service.
During design, PCS prepared hydraulic modeling of the proposed bridge for approval by IDNR for the new access drive over the West Fork of Clark’s Creek, the design of 14,450’ of enclosed storm sewers along with 146 junction structures, design of two major detention ponds, wetland mitigation and design utilizing the eastern-most detention pond, hydraulic modeling of the relocated Mercer Legal Drain, the design of 6,250’ of sanitary sewer, water design through the Indianapolis Water Company and site grading design. PCS prepared all on-site and off-site easement drawings, descriptions and conveyance instruments for the appropriate utility serving the project. PCS was involved in all public and governmental staff meetings including Hendricks County Drainage Board, Hendricks County BZA and Hendricks County Plan Commission. Permitting with IDEM, IDNR and the County was performed by PCS personnel.
